Photographic Scales

I was recently on a landscape workshop and commented that I was often slow to get started. Someone said that’s ok, it is all part of performing your photographic scales. I have heard this term before and it makes perfect sense. Any pursuit requires regular practice. This idea translates easily to photography. If it has been some time since you have taken an image do you find that you sometimes struggle to capture an image that you are happy with.

Practice not only involves getting technically better, but extending creativity. You have to exercise your eye and your imagination.

These are not intended to be award-winning images, just an exercise in photographic scales. I am happy with the results.

How often do you practice your photographic scales?

    Hi Mark, I’ve never thought of it like that before – like keeping your voice in tune or your piano skills honed by practising scales….an interesting comparison, I think I should definitely adopt this idea! Thanks you for sharing!
